Hi,

Clear the eMMC does not make sense, instead you should overwrite It with another system.

To do that, just write a system image in a SD, turn on the OPi with the SD plugged in, and then execute the script to write that system to the eMMC (this overwrite the older one).

I am not sure about OP plus, bur my Opi+2e came with Android preinstalled on eMMC, it's never been blank. You can use PhoenixCard tool to write Android image as "Product", and when you insert sdcard in device, it will write fresh Android to eMMC, kind of reset. Or you can use some Linux image with script to write itself to eMMC, like Armbian, or Loboris images.

Thanks for all the answers.

Already found 1 solution of my problem, rewriting the image to the SC card again.
Now, when the SD card in inserted it boots from the SD card.

I'll understand that i can write this SD card to the eMMC again to clear it from other installs.
But for me it's strange that we can't "clear" the eMMC.

But again, thanks for sharing guys

I found from this page this instruction, has anyone tried it yet?

https://www.jeffgeerling.com/blo ... e-on-orange-pi-plus

To use the built-in 8GB of eMMC storage on the Orange Pi Plus as a writable volume in Linux, you need to delete the existing partitions (I think mine were formatted as FAT/WIN32), create a new partition, format the partition, then mount it:

Delete the existing partitions:
sudo fdisk /dev/mmcblk1
p to list all partitions, then d and a number to delete all existing partitions, then w to write the changes.
Create a new partition:
sudo fdisk /dev/mmcblk1
n to create a new partition, then use all the defaults, then w to write the changes.
Format the partition: sudo mkfs.ext4 -L "emmc" /dev/mmcblk1p1
Create a mount point: sudo mkdir /emmc
Mount the disk: mount /dev/mmcblk1p1 /emmc
